Army to Fund Robotics Toolkit Development

From the EE Times:

The proliferation of unmanned vehicle technologies used by the U.S. military has prompted an Army command to fund development of a toolkit that could be used for its entire fleet of unmanned ground vehicles.

The U.S. Army's Transportation Command (Warren, Mich.) will fund a six-month research project to develop a low-cost "robot infrastructure toolkit" that can be used for a wide range of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).

RE2 Inc., a Carnegie Mellon University spin-off (Pittsburgh), said Tuesday (Jan. 3) it will develop a toolkit focusing on specialized communication components and robotic manipulators with a common control interface

For a while Evo was looking at getting the ERSP selected as a standard robotics toolkit—by someone other than the U.S. Army.

Maybe these two stories can hook up... send some new age 32 bit lego over to the Middle East to kick ass.

Er, I mean to liberate.

For some tests I was doing I was reloading lemonodor.com again and again, and I was like what the hell there are too many images this is taking too long. So I figured two or three posts without would be OK. Keeps 'em special.
